The European Cycling Challenge 2017 is the biggest cycling event across Europe. The idea is to encourage people to use their bikes as much as possible. It’s about everyday cycling for everyone.
ALL cycling is permitted with the exception of sporting and training events. Whether you are cycling all the way to work, to the station, going to the shops or just enjoying being out on your bike, we want you to take part and record your routes to help improve cycling across the Clyde Valley.
Last year, 52 cities, including Glasgow, joined the Challenge. Over 46,000 people cycled four million kilometres (4,000,000 km) during the month of May. Glasgow finished a respectable 18th with 72,000km recorded with the Glasgow boundary but recorded over 127,750 km in total.
Once again the We Go Pedal team will be pedalling for victory. Last year the We Go Pedal team, which was part of Team Glasgow, had 11 members and thanks to our combined efforts we cycled a total of 1268 kms and we came 14th out of all 74 sub-teams that made up Team Glasgow! So we need more people to sign up to the team!
